It's A Wrap

It is the 28th and final day of the Third Second Annual 30 Minus 2 Days of Writing challenge hosted by Nicky and Mike at We Work for Cheese and today's prompt is And then my brain exploded.  Congratulations to all the other participants.  We made it!

As the sun sets upon the 2014 30 minus 2 Days of Writing Challenge, we take a look back at the past 28 days.

We laughed, we cried, we lied, some made it, some faked it.  It was chaos, it was a dream, but it was no accident.

We ate gouda, and drank vodka and left the empty bottles all over the floor.  Hint, hint, we need a maid.  

And then she said, "damn, did you post that on Facebook"?  How did you find out? Uh...there are things best left unsaid.  

We fended off zombies, aliens and succubi which left us scatterbrained, naked and lost.  Some developed temporary insanity and played Dylan tunes endlessly.  Can you turn that down? My ears are ringing!

We took this challenge on one bite at a time, and it tasted like chicken. Some swore in their best Shakespearean English that they would participate in another challenge when Hell freezes over. Others just went incommunicado.

We shared good times, made new friends, and caught up with old friends.

But when all was said and done, mon cerveau a explosé!


  1. Brain-exploding challenges.. mon diex!

  2. Well done for completing it all :)

  10. Way to wrap things up. I love it. And so what if I listen to too much Dylan?

  11. What a nice wrap up. I enjoyed all of your posts especially the suspense of whether Jorge was going to actually kill Alex and Charlie. I should of known the bad guys would never win.

  12. Hah, what a great wrap up! And you make it seem so effortless.

  13. I wish I could've done more.

    No I don't. That me lying to please others. I'm dysfunctional.

    But congratulations. You deserve an award. Too bad you won't be getting one.

  14. What does "mon cerveau a explosé" mean? Just kidding. But only because even though I don't know French, I know something else. Le Prompt! :)

    MikeWJ- Thanks! I enjoyed the Sherlock/Moriarty adventures.

    Margaret- Yeah, I didn't think that would be too hard to figure out.

    Nicky- Merci Beaucoup, oh maître de défis d'écriture.

  17. This was a great closure to your challenge. You really have done amazing amount of writing and, as I've said, it does impress. To keep at it day after day. Kudos to you, Linda. You did a great job with this.

    I hope you're resting your fingers and your mind. Take it easy for awhile and just enjoy hubby, cats and life:~)
